New Little Mermaid Posters by Tom Whalen for Mondo

On Thursday last week, in honor of the Diamond Edition Blu-ray release of The Little Mermaid, on October 1st (today), Mondo released two new posters by Tom Whalen, who's re-imagined many beautiful posters for Disney movies.

They're going to be tough to find, being limited edition and even if you get first prints, they're pricey already. No doubt we'll see additional artwork from more affordable sources with the Blu-ray release and the theater screenings.

It's interesting that this time round the darker aspects of the story are being emphasized as opposed to the dreamier ones that dominated in the nineties. That definitely tracks with the current iterations of fairy tale retellings that are currently popular. I find that fascinating.
